Sentinel Systems' new warning sign system, Bike Hotspot, is designed to reduce the number of accidents involving cyclists and commercial vehicles.
The Bike Hotspot uses LED lights to give cyclists approaching from the rear of a vehicle a clear warning that the vehicle is about to turn left. The LED Cycle Sign can be fitted along with the Bike Hotspot system to the rear of the nearside of the vehicle or as a standalone product.
The Bike Hotspot system works by fitting sensors on the nearside of the vehicle, and the sign will activate at speeds lower than 10 miles per hour. The sensors are linked to a choice of alarm, including in-cab sounds, LED lights and external speakers that warn cyclists to move away from the vehicle. Installing the sign onto vehicles will give cyclists a visual indication that the vehicle is about to maneuver, giving them time to stay out of the way of any potential harm.
